Diocese Mourns Death of Lady Sarah Clutton

Lady Sarah Clutton
It is with great sadness that the Diocese heard of the death of Lady Sarah Clutton's on Sunday 14 June. Many in the Diocese know her well from the Diocesan Lourdes Pilgrimage which she served so generously for many, many years as its Director.

Bishop Richard says: "Although new to the Diocese I am well aware of the tremendous love and esteem in which Lady Sarah was held. The Diocese owes her a huge debt of gratitude for her witness to the Gospel, notably in her wonderful work for the Lourdes Pilgrimage."

Michael Thoms, the current Director of the Lourdes Pilgrimage says of his predecessor: "In this life she was a tower of strength, helping others throughout her time with us, and showing through example what it is to serve from the heart."

We would ask you to pray for her and her family at this time. There will be a Private Funeral this week with a Memorial Mass to be held at Arundel Cathedral on Monday 28 September.

May she rest in peace.
